Man­frotto Com­pact Ad­vanced

A light­weight alu­minium cam­era support for smaller D-SLRs – and it’s also light on the pocket

You could splash se­ri­ous cash on a tri­pod, but this en­try-level Man­frotto is a tempt­ing cost-ef­fec­tive op­tion. Five-sec­tion alu­minium legs and an ex­tend­ing cen­tre col­umn give a use­ful 165cm max­i­mum shoot­ing height, plus enough support for up to three kilo­grams of kit, yet the tri­pod it­self weighs just 1.42 kilo­grams. A sim­ple three-way head tops things off, and though it’s pri­mar­ily plas­tic, it works well. The legs won’t spread more than 21 de­grees and they’re not es­pe­cially rigid at full stretch, but the Com­pact Ad­vanced is still a well-priced and ca­pa­ble com­pan­ion for a Nikon 1 or light­weight D-SLR. It’s also avail­able in white.
